Production Designer Anton Furst, Who Won An Oscar for Gotham City's Surreal Look, Leaps to a Tragic Death
Clearly there was another side. On Nov. 24 Furst, 47, leapt to his death from an L.A. parking garage about eight floors up. Police say a witness saw him jump. Furst reportedly had alcohol problems, and on Sunday he admitted himself to a hospital. Less than an hour later he inexplicably left, and soon after plunged off an adjacent garage. "It's just a shock," says Barish. "The last time I talked to him, three weeks ago, he was very enthused." Furst had a deal with Columbia Pictures for several projects, including a Michael Jackson movie. He was not working on the Batman sequel.
Furst, divorced, is survived by children Vanessa King, 26, and Nicholas, 20. Though good-humored, he could also be intense. "The moment you don't enter fully into something," he said of making Batman, "that's the time to give up."
